Politics and public policy by Carl E Van Horn( Book )

26 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 1,078 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do policymakers select certain problems for attention and ignore others? Why do some policy ideas fail and other succeed? In addition to the US President, Congress and Supreme Court what other institutions are influential in shaping public policies? How do policymakers design and implement policies? How do those policies ultimately influence the nation? Providing answers to these and other questions are the focus of this book. The practice of politics and policymaking is complicated, involving thousands of people in government institutions and the private sector. Although each public law and public policy has a unique history, Politics and Public Policy is designed to help students understand the larger patterns of the policy making process. Politics and Public Policy goes beyond conventional analyses that focus narrowly and exclusively on presidents and members of Congress to offer a more comprehensive and realistic view of policymaking in the United States. The judicial rulings, regulations, administrative rulings, and corporate decisions of judges, bureaucrats, corporate officials, journalists, and voters determine government policy and results just as much as the decisions of legislators and chief executives. Moreover, state and local governments play an increasingly important and expanding role in the design and conduct of public policies

Working scared (or not at all) : the lost decade, great recession, and restoring the shattered American dream by Carl E Van Horn( Book )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Work Scared draws on nearly twenty-five thousand interviews with employed and unemployed Americans conducted from 1998 to 2012. These voices of American workers tell a compelling story about wrenching structural changes and recessions during one of the most volatile periods in U.S. economic history. This book represents one of the most comprehensive social science research portraits of the views of American workers about their jobs, the workplace, and government's role in the labor market. Working Sacred will help citizens, policy makers, educators, businesses, unions, and community leaders betters understand what is happening to the U.S. workforce. It also describes the essential national priorities and policies that will assist frustrated, angry, and scared American workers and the reforms that will help restore the American dream of secure employment and intergenerational progress."--Jacket

Enhancing the connection between higher education and the workplace : a survey of employers by Carl E Van Horn( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reviews issues in fostering closer connections between higher education and the workplace and summarizes results of a 1995 survey of 404 New Jersey employers concerning the knowledge, skills, and abilities that New Jersey employers expect from higher education graduates and their suggestions for improving college-based workforce preparation. Fifty-seven percent of employers said it was difficult to find well-prepared job candidates for positions requiring college degrees. Employers gave the following skills or characteristics as most important: integrity and honesty, listening, reading, oral communication, and written communication. Employer-suggested improvements for institutions of higher education included providing more experience-based learning and more solicitation of input from businesses. The survey also investigated the kinds of training employers provided their workers and methods for improving the training services that higher education provides to the workforce. Most businesses provided on-the-job training or private consultant training to new employees. Businesses desired more information about higher education training capabilities and graduating student contact resources; many felt that teachers did not know enough about working in the real world to properly prepare students. Appendixes include complete survey results, the survey instrument, and details of its methodology. (Contains 29 references.) (Nav)

An evaluation of the targeted jobs demonstration program by Carl E Van Horn( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Targeted Jobs Demonstration Program (tjdp) was a two-year, six-agency demonstration project under which 14 communities received federal funds to encourage local coordination of federal programs to link federally assisted economic development programs with employment and training programs for individuals from minority groups and for economically disadvantaged persons. To evaluate the effectiveness of the tjdp, researchers conducted three rounds of field research and prepared case studies on each of the 14 project sites. These analyses revealed the tjdp to be a partial success. While several communities either made no attempt or were unsuccessful in carrying out the demonstration's objectives, significant accomplishments were achieved in a few communities. This special record is not, however, surprising when the economic recession and reductions in federally funded economic development and employment and training programs are taken into consideration. Indeed, the experience of the tjdp site in Portland, Oregon strongly suggests that job targeting strategies can be an effective tool for helping disadvantaged persons obtain unsubsidized employment from private firms assisted by economic development investments.

Economic development projects and jobs : lessons from the targeted jobs demonstration program by Carl Van Horn( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide, based on approaches for targeting jobs and business opportunities that were developed during the Targeted Jobs Demonstration Program (tjdp), contains strategies and techniques for ensuring that some of the benefits of economic development investments are directed to low-income individuals and small and minority businesses. Addressed in the three parts of the guide are the benefits of targeting; approaches to job targeting (sharing information and resources, joint incentive marketing, and hiring agreements); and targeting business opportunities for small, minority, and female-owned businesses (negotiating spin-off business opportunities and procurement policies). Each section discusses general approaches to targeting; gives examples from cities and counties that have applied the approaches described; and, where appropriate, includes copies of forms, plans, and local ordinances used to implement the strategies. Appended to the guide are a list of people to contact in the 14 tjdp communities and a list of tjdp evaluation reports. (Mn)
